Mike Pence for vice president
"Make America Great Again."Donald J. Trump (b. 1946) is a well-known businessman and television personality. He has never held government office or served in the military. He will be the first such candidate to ever serve as President. Announcing his candidacy in June 2015, he said “Our country is in terrible trouble. We don’t have victories any more,” and he promised to “build a great, great wall on our Southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for it.” Trump has run an unconventional campaign, relying on frequent coverage on television and a personal use of social media.
Tim Kaine for vice president
"We Are Stronger Together."Hillary Rodham Clinton (b. 1947) was the first lady during the presidency of her husband, Bill Clinton (1993-2001). She has served as U.S. Senator from New York State (2001-2009) and as Secretary of State to President Barack Obama (2000-2013). In April 2015, she became the first candidate to announce her run for the presidency in the 2016 election. During the video message declaring her candidacy, she used a traditional Democratic Party theme, “Everyday Americans need a champion. And I want to be that champion.”
